About RomanPunks

It's the year 410 AD, the Visigoths are sacking the city of Rome. A rift in the fabric of space-time occurs at the Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus. Suddenly multiple dimensions collide and coalesce. Time travelers & space farers exist alongside terrestrials who had previously lived thousands of years apart. The world is now a fractured patchwork of time and space with Rome at the center of it all. The world is now RomanPunk...

RomanPunks is a retrofuturistic, cyberpunk derivative world-building project inspired by fine art, history and the cryptopunk movement.

A total of 1,000 RomanPunk characters have been frozen in time and permanently minted on the Ethereum, WAX, Polygon and Algorand blockchains.

All images are drawn by hand by woman artist and co-founder, Cleopunktra, without the aid of AI or generative tools.

The basis for RomanPunk lore and backstories is exhaustively researched by history/sci-fi buff and co-founder, Punktavian.

RomanPunk characters are comprised of commoners and famous individuals based on Roman history, art history and pop culture.
